'I want to be a complete actor'

'I want to be a complete actor'

The world is her stage. That was clear the minute Parvathy Omanakuttan was coronated with a tiara that proclaimed her the Miss India World. Vindicating the title, she has now signed up for her first Bollywood venture, titled United Six.
Parvathy’s debut will have the beauty queen playing an action girl full of verve and energy. In the City recently, Parvathy spoke to Metrolife on her Bollywood debut and Hollywood aspirations.

"United Six has no hero in it, it's a fast-paced action movie where six women from different backgrounds and cities battle it out to survive in Bangkok," Parvathy told Metrolife.

She says she's been in no hurry to grab the offers pouring in her way as she’s keen on being part of interesting endeavours. "I want to be a complete actor. I am looking at something that would catapult me into the big league of Hollywood. I am not keen on confining myself to India," she says.

But Parvathy is modest enough to admit that she has a great deal to learn as an actor and that she wants to portray every role with finesse. What kind of magic does Bollywood wield over her?
“The Bollywood industry is changing and so is the audience. It wants new themes and newer faces. Indians love cricket and films and always want a variety in that," she reasons.

And yes, it's a challenge to be known and spotted everywhere. “It's a tough battle because everybody is chasing the same dream and it's a mad race but one must be willing to take up the challenge and surge forward with confidence. Nothing is impossible,” she says, “when there's no dearth of talent and opportunities then what should one wait for?”

Parvathy knows there's no shortcut to success and hard work and the determination to do something and get somewhere is the only way to the top.

Commenting about Bangalore, Parvathy says that it has a charm all of its own that no other metropolis across the country commands. “The weather is incomparable and I love it,” she says.
